2 Live Crew: Express Yourself
RJ Smith, L.A. Weekly, 21 June 1990
AS WE go to press there is a Sheriff's Department search on inBroward County, Fla., for the two members of salacious rap group 2 Live Crew who eluded police arrest early June 10. The other members have already been charged with performing obscene material after their adults-only show in Hollywood, Fla., last Saturday night. June 7 a federal district judge in Florida ruled that their As Nasty as They Wanna Be was full of speech that's not protected by the First Amendment, as the record "appealed to dirty thoughts and loins, not to the intellect of the mind." The next day, a record-store owner in the area was arrested.
